Annual Holiday Reading at Muncy Historical Society

By Staff | Dec 3, 2008

The Muncy Historical Society welcomes the holiday season as a time for highlighting treasured traditions, from decorating trees, to giving gifts, to anxiously awaiting the arrival of Santa Claus. The society, 40 N. Main St., hosts its annual holiday reading at 10 a.m. on Saturday Dec. 6.

Seated before the decorated mantle, a nightgown-clad Bill Poulton will read the famous poem “The Night Before Christmas,” penned by Clement Clarke Moore 186 years ago for the enjoyment of his own family.

In years past, the “prancing and pawing of each little hoof” has announced the arrival of Saint Nick and a repeat visit is expected this year, too. Santa will have a surprise bag for every child and he also will sit for photographs with the children. Hot chocolate and cookies will be served following the reading.

The museum’s gift shop will be open until noon Dec. 6 for holiday shopping opportunities.

The holiday reading is Muncy Historical Society’s last official event in 2008. The museum will open on its regular Monday and Friday schedule beginning March 2, 2009.
